Too Faced BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA Review + Video Demo

This product was sent to me for review consideration. This does not effect my opinion or experiences in any way. 

As soon as you pull this mascara out of the package, you fall in love. Or should I say ... lust.

The tube is a sleek vintage pink shade with a perfectly weighted handle. Definitely gives you that ouh la la luxurious feeling about it. 
The vegan friendly hair like bristles are set in an hour glass shape. Said to have been modeled after the bust-waste-hip measurements of a Hollywood bombshell. I feel this unique shape and the hair bristles help the product grip onto my lashes with easy. Creating that sexy voluminous look that I love. 
The formula is on the thinner side. If I am not carefully looking all the way down my nose on the first coat I tend to get some mascara on my eyelid. Luckily it wipes off easily with a clean finger, if I get to it before it dries. Once this mascara sets, it is on there for good! Keep in mind that I am a messy makeup applicator in general. Usually because I am rushing around trying to get myself and the kids out the door. 

Now the upside to a thinner formula is the ability to add on layers. I would say that at three though coats my lashes start to get a bit clumpy and spider leg-ish. Some of you may like that look and that is totally fine. I just usually go for a more natural but still voluminous look. In my opinion, two coats of this mascara = perfection. 

Check out this before and after
There have been times that I've applied a bit too much of this mascara. We've all been there. The fix ? I run a stiffer synthetic mascara wand through my lashes to separate and de-clump them a bit. It doesn't even need to have product on it. ie: Covergirl Clump Crusher or Benefits They're Real Mascara. This method works every time. 

Another plus about this mascara is that I don't have to curl my lashes to get a defined look. I am far to lazy to curl my lashes everyday. Luckily this mascara does the hard work for me. 
I wouldn't say that this Better Than Sex Mascara is fully waterproof but it doesn't smudge at the first drop of water either. It does remove easily with a makeup removing wipe, which a major plus. I don't feel like I have to pinch or pull it off my lashes to remove it. 

I LOVE the shape of the vegan friendly hair bristles. This mascara gives me great volume and curl. I do have to be careful during application but it lasts all day and washes off easily. Definitely better than any drugstore mascara I've tried !

Have you tried this mascara before ? What is your favorite mascara ?


  1. Haha! I am also WAY to lazy to use an eyelash curler when I do happen to wear mascara, so I am always on the lookout for a good one that allows me to skip that step. ;) Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. This looks like a great product. I will have to check it out.
